Minibus Driver recruitment agency listing

Minibus drivers transport passengers to and from local destinations. They may provide community transport for the elderly or ferry children between educational institutions.

There are two routes into a career as a minibus driver. Prospective minibus drivers can either secure a position with a company who will contribute to the cost of their training or they can take self-funded, private minibus driving lessons. All prospective minibus drivers require a full Standard Driving License (Category B) and must be at least 21 years of age.

For those wishing to drive minibuses, a Passenger Carrying Vehicle (PCV) called a D1 licence is an essential requirement. To apply for a provisional licence, it is necessary to complete a D2 application form and have a D4 medical form completed by a doctor. Once candidates have received their provisional licence, they can start training for their D1 licence. To acquire a full D1 licence, it is necessary to pass both a theoretical and practical test. In addition to their D1 licence, minibus drivers require a Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (Driver CPC).

The majority of minibus drivers are employed by local bus companies and schools, with jobs typically being advertised through recruitment agencies that specialise in handling driving jobs. Once in employment, minibus driving staff may be encouraged to work towards NVQs in Road Passenger Transport or Passenger Carrying Vehicle Driving.

A minibus driver with a Category D1 licence may earn around £15,000 a year, depending on their experience, qualifications, location and employer.
